Tiny case. I wonder if this 'U-Type 65mm' can be mounted side to side rather than front to back. Do you use CPUl graphics?

If it uses the usual mounting hardware it ahould mount either way.

As for video, i will be using a server board and they always have very basic on board video. Plus i will be using IPMI rather then have a monitor hooked up. Plus i wont need a dvd drive.

Indeed. Would be nice to be able to have it all flowing from one side to the other.

Shame that there's been no signs of the next gen fans. Oh well, maybe we'll hear about them at Computex again biggrin.gif
I'll be interested in seeing if they have that 20cm fan on show yet again and whether there has been any visible changes to it.

Hi Guys!

First post here :-) Kindly ask for a quick help regarding choosing the right Noctua fan for intake and exhaust fan purposes for my BitFenix Shinobi (non-Window version) case. As I can see, Noctua offers 3 types of 120 mm fan for different purposes:

  • I have chosen Noctua NF-F12 PWM for CPU cooler. It is clear, this is a static pressure fan, capable of better "focusing" the airflow through the heatsink.
  • For front intake purposes, I plan to buy Noctua NF-P12 PWM type, because there are "honeycomb" type intake fan holes on the case (stamped directly onto the metal body of a chassis itself), combined with very restrictive mesh filters on each. According to other experience found on the net, using S12As as the intakes, they are really loud behind the filters.
  • For rear exhaust, I plan to have Noctua NF-S12A PWM. And this is the point where I'm not sure about :-) The rear exhaust fan holes are simply "honeycomb" type holes without mesh filters on it. Does it mean can I use NF-S12A for rear exhaust? Or is it better to have P12 also for exhaust?
  • For top exhaust, the fan holes are the same as intake holes ("honeycomb" with mesh filters, the mesh filter is part of the top panel of the case). Is it better to use S12A also for top exhaust with mesh filters or P12 is recommended?

So the main point is, it is not totally clear for me if there are any difference between P12 and S12A when puling or pushing air through the mesh air filters.
Some pics of the case can be found here.

Thank You very much in advance for the support!

Just get NF-F12 and call it a day. They more a lot of air and have good staric pressure for restrictive areas like grills, heat sinks, and radiators. It makes a very good all round fan.

When I had a case with a restrictive front "filter" I removed it. I also removed the rear "grill." That was the case in item 2 of my sig. Now, the point of that was to show what happens when you remove such obstructions. The increase in airflow it massive. For one thing, metal downstream from the heatsink causes air to be bounced off it as if it was a solid wall, unless you put in a noisy exhaust fan or remove the metal.

 

In a review titled "Noctua A-Series (NF-A14 NF-A15) Review" I did for Vortez.net published on 29-06-13 (crazy European dating scheme) I compared the NF-S12A with the NF-F12 and the NF-P12.

 

Whenever you mount fans, try to use vibration isolators. I have tried pretty much all of them, and these are the best. Free shipping, too.

 

Bottom line, though: if you have to case mod, do it before you put your stuff in. And it is better to cut out obstructions rather than to overcome them.

Thank You very much, Guys!
Originally modding the case was not the plan, but I think I can give it a try by removing the grills :-)
And what's Your experience with the dust? I absolutely agree, removing grills + mesh filters could be a good choice from airflow point of view but they are useful for fighting against the dust. What do You think?
